AFFILIATE ACCEPTANCE

Upon submitting an application to become an Affiliate in the Gururo Affiliate Program, your application will undergo our review process. We reserve the right to contact you for additional information or clarification as part of this review.

Participation in any additional programs requires a separate application process and adherence to the respective program’s terms and conditions.

As an Affiliate, you are expected to comply with all terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, including adherence to any applicable Program Policies, at all times.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

As a Gururo Affiliate, you agree to the following terms:

  1. Account Information Accuracy: It is your responsibility to provide accurate account information and to keep it updated. This includes, but is not limited to, contact details, payment information, tax information, URLs of all websites promoting Gururo, traffic sources, promotional methods, and any other details requested by Gururo. Gururo reserves the right to ask for additional information about websites where Gururo is promoted and the practices used for promotion. Failure to provide accurate information or provide the requested data may result in exclusion from the Affiliate Program, temporary suspension, or termination of your account and forfeiture of any commissions.
  2. Good Faith Referrals: You must act in good faith to refer clients in good standing. Clients in good standing are those who have provided valid contact information, have active accounts in compliance with Gururo’s Terms of Service, and are not flagged for high fraud risk. An active account refers to referred new users who have not canceled their account within 45 days.
  3. Avoiding Revenue Loss: You should not engage in any actions or recommendations that could result in revenue loss for Gururo.

  6. Prohibition on Self-Referral: You must not use self-referral methods, such as clicking on your own affiliate links or making purchases through your affiliate link. Matching IP addresses used for both affiliate panel login and purchase will be considered self-referral. The use of VPNs for purchases via the affiliate link is also prohibited. Violations may result in the loss of all accrued rewards and dismissal from the program.
  7. No Blackhat SEO/Spam: Refrain from engaging in blackhat SEO or spam link-building techniques to generate more referrals for Gururo.

  12. Termination for Pre-Affiliation Circumstances: If circumstances become apparent after you join the affiliate program, which would have led Gururo not to enter into an agreement with you, Gururo reserves the right to terminate the cooperation immediately and/or withhold payment for the previous period.

AFFILIATE ADVERTISING

As a Gururo Affiliate, you are permitted to use only those promotional materials that are approved by Gururo in your advertising efforts. Approved promotional materials are those provided in your Affiliate Area. These materials may include Gururo’s trademarks, service marks, logos, and slogans for display on your Affiliate Website. By agreeing to this Affiliate Agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive, limited, and non-transferable license to access, download, and place the approved promotional material on your website solely to promote websites operated, controlled, and owned by Gururo.

Should this Affiliate Agreement be terminated by any party, your license to use Gururo’s promotional materials will be immediately and automatically revoked.

Inappropriate Advertising Methods Include, But Are Not Limited To:

  1. Illegal or Spam Advertising: This includes unsolicited email, unauthorized placements on forums, newsgroups, message boards, etc.
  2. Restricted Paid Advertising: Using Pay per Click (PPC) or Pay per Impression campaigns without our prior approval. Bidding on keywords containing “Gururo” or similar variations on search engines without approval is prohibited. You may not use Gururo’s websites as display URLs in paid media ads or direct-link to Gururo’s websites.
  3. Copyright Infringement: Promoting Gururo using non-unique, copyright infringing content is not allowed.
  4. Prohibited Traffic Generation: Generating traffic through pay-to-read, pay-to-click, banner exchanges, click exchanges, PPV advertising, pop-up/under, or similar methods is not permitted.
  5. Unauthorized Incentives: Offering cashbacks, rewards, or any incentives to obtain sales without our prior approval is forbidden.
  6. Discounts and Vouchers: You may not offer price savings, coupons, vouchers, or discount codes without our prior approval.
  7. Negative Representation: Avoid using Gururo’s advertising materials, trademarks, or name in a way that negatively affects our image.
  8. Cookie Stuffing: Using iframes or other techniques that place your affiliate tracking cookie by means other than an actual click-through is prohibited.
  9. Link Cloaking: Do not use cloaking or masking techniques to hide the origin of your traffic or to promote Gururo on unapproved websites or networks.
  10. Content Restrictions: Your website(s) must not contain objectionable material, including lewd, obscene, illegal, pornographic, or any content deemed objectionable by Gururo. This also includes materials promoting bigotry, hatred, or any form of discrimination.
  11. Trademark Misuse: Your domain name(s), company name, logo, trademark, products, projects, services must not contain keywords and phrases containing “Gururo” or variations thereof without prior approval. Also, avoid using third-party trademarks unless authorized.

Gururo reserves the sole right to determine the appropriateness of your promotional methods. The use of any advertising method deemed inappropriate by us may result in a warning, suspension, or termination of your affiliate account, and cancellation of all outstanding commission payments. Additionally, disrespectful or offensive communication with the dedicated affiliate manager will result in a permanent ban from the Affiliate Program.

AFFILIATE TRACKING COOKIES

At Gururo, affiliate sales are tracked automatically using cookies. These cookies are placed in the browser of a user when they click on an affiliate link leading to our website. Here’s how it works:

  1. Cookie Duration: Each cookie placed through your affiliate link is stored for up to 30 days in the user’s browser. This means that if the user makes a purchase on our site within this period, you will receive credit for the sale.
  2. Overwriting Cookies: If a user already has an affiliate cookie from another affiliate in their browser and then clicks on your affiliate link, the existing cookie will be overwritten with yours. This ensures that the most recent referral is credited for any sales.
  3. User-Initiated Cookie Deletion: If a user intentionally deletes their cookies, we cannot track those sales back to an affiliate. In such cases, Gururo is not responsible for the loss of tracking information. Affiliates should be aware that some users regularly clear their cookies, which can impact tracking.

It is important to note that the effectiveness of cookie-based tracking can be influenced by various factors, including user behavior and browser settings. As an affiliate, you should be aware of these limitations and understand that Gururo cannot guarantee the tracking of every referral due to these external factors.

AFFILIATE COMMISSION STRUCTURE AND PAYMENTS

As a Gururo Affiliate, you will be categorized into one of four tiers based on your performance, with each tier offering different commission rates:

  1. Bronze Affiliate: Earn a 10% commission.
  2. Silver Affiliate: Earn a 15% commission.

  4. Platinum Affiliate: Earn a 25% commission.

Commission Calculations:

  • Commissions are calculated on the net sales value of qualified referrals, excluding any returns, cancellations, taxes, fees, and additional services.

  • Payments are processed monthly, following a 30-day refund window for courses.

  • Gururo reserves the right to modify the commission structure and calculation methods at any time.
  • If you have any disputes regarding your commission, you must contact us at support@gururo.com within 30 days of the commission report or the date of the event in question.
  • Failure to dispute within this time frame will be considered as acceptance of the commission amount.

Refunds and Fraudulent Transactions:

  • Commissions will not be credited for purchases that are cancelled or refunded within 45 days.
  • Gururo reserves the right to review all transactions for potential fraud. During investigations of possible fraud or illegal activities, we may withhold payment for up to 180 days.

  • Commissions that remain unclaimed or not withdrawn for over 2 years will be forfeited and removed from your affiliate account balance.

RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES

Both the Affiliate and Gururo Private Limited acknowledge and agree that they are entering into this Affiliate Agreement as independent contractors. This agreement does not establish any form of partnership, agency, franchise, joint venture, sales representative, or employment relationship between them.

As an Affiliate, you are not authorized to make or accept any offers or representations on behalf of Gururo. You must not make any statements, either on your website or through other channels, that could be interpreted as contradictory to this section or imply a different kind of relationship between you and Gururo.

The independent contractor status is fundamental to the arrangement between Gururo and its affiliates, ensuring that both parties retain their separate legal and business identities. Affiliates should conduct their business activities in a manner that reflects this independence and should not represent themselves as agents or employees of Gururo.

  • Accounts showing no new conversions for the last six months will be considered inactive and may be marked as dormant.
  • If any Commissions are due at the time of termination, they will be paid to the Affiliate after any applicable holding period and in accordance with the regular payout cycle. However, if your account is terminated due to violations of the Terms and Conditions, no outstanding Commission payments will be due, and an administrative fee of 125 USD (or the equivalent in the currency listed in your Affiliate Area) may be charged.

Obligations Upon Termination:

  • Upon termination of your Affiliate account, you are required to remove all promotional materials, links, logos, trademarks, and slogans related to Gururo from your website within three business days.
  • This obligation survives the termination of the Affiliate Agreement.
  • After termination of this Agreement, you no longer have the right to use any of Gururo’s trademarks, logos, and slogans and must refrain from any actions that could negatively impact Gururo’s reputation or business relationships.

Effect of Termination:

  • The termination of your Affiliate account automatically results in the termination of this Affiliate Agreement.
